Quinta das Bágeiras, Avô Fausto Tinto, Bairrada, 2019
(at Baga for Beginners Tasting, 20 May 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2032
Less extracted, with orange blossom and bergamot top notes courtesy of 20% Touriga Nacional, this tribute to the winemaker’s grandfather, Fausto, favours his preferred elegant style. In a fresh year, it has lovely purity and definition to the juicy, cedar-edged blackberry and plum, with fine-grained tannins. Avô Fausto was traditionally whole bunch fermented in lagar, then aged in old toneis.
